// by John Locke | Philosophy Department at St. Anselm College //

The understanding, like the eye, whilst it makes us see and perceive all other things, takes no notice of itself; and it requires art and pains to set it at a distance and make it its own object.

— John Locke

New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.

— John Locke
